Safety Deon Grant Visiting Giants

Mike Garafolo is reporting that former Seahawks safety Deon Grant is visiting the Giants today. The 31 year old safety was released from the Seahawks not because of performance, but because he was owed $17 million over the next 3 seasons. Seattle doesn’t want to pay that. Grant’s a very good cover safety, who’s always […]

Prospect Profiles: OT Bruce Campbell

If you don’t know his name yet. Learn it. If you’re into drawing up your own mock drafts and such make sure you pay attention to the Combines because Bruce Campbell is about to explode much like Jason Smith did last year (or Tyson Jackson, or Darrius Heyward Bey or Vernon Gholston, Jerod Mayo, Dominque […]

Osi for Kerry?

I can’t remember where I saw this, so if you are the person who thought of it, I’m sorry I didn’t give you credit. But, the gist of the proposed deal was this: Osi Umenyiora for Kerry Rhodes? It fits a need for both teams. The Jets need a pass rusher. The Giants need a […]

Ranking The Giants: Secondary

We continue to Rank The Giants, with this edition focusing on the secondary. Oh, the secondary. To be fair, this unit had a LOT of injuries. Had they been healthy, who knows, it might have been a strength. But, they didn’t stay healthy, and we were stuck with a patchwork secondary. I’m feeling harsh, so […]

Compiling Mock Drafts

Because the season is winding down, pundits are beginning their mock drafts. Personally, it’s way too early to do a mock, but they’re doing it nonetheless. Here are two mock drafts, and who the Giants pick. Bucky Brooks, NFL.com Brooks has the Giants selecting Florida ILB Brandon Spikes. Jesse did a detailed breakdown of Spikes […]

Bucs Interested in DB Eric Berry

All things told, the Giants are going to need a crazy good safety next year. If the Gmen do run a Tampa 2 scheme as many think they will due the hiring of Perry Fewell, a lot of pressure is going to be put on the secondary to make plays – consistently. Can they get […]

Prospect Profiles-S Earl Thomas

Earl Thomas is a safety out of the University Texas. Thomas is a redshirt sophmore, so even though he only played two years of college football he is eligble for the draft. Earl Thomas is a sure-fire first pick and the second (my opinion) or third best (people who like Taylor Mays a lot) safety […]

Season-In-Review: What Went Wrong – Injuries

Injuries Injuries Injuries, thats a word the 2009 Giants were very familiar with.  Over the course of the year the Giants’ roster was decimated by injuries, none bigger in my opinion then Kenny Phillips.  The Giants made a splash in free agency, seemed to have a good draft and were poised to make another run […]

Season-In-Review: What Went Wrong: Free Agency

Jerry “In Jerry We Trust” Reese has had a pretty stellar start to his GM tenure in New York. His draft picks has produced immediately, and has gained full trust in the fan base. For the first time in his tenure, the Giants made a splash in free agency, signing Michael Boley, Chris Canty, Rocky […]
